Once again this is the week’s games release list with the more notable titles highlighted. As you can see it’s a pretty strong line-up across all the three four major platforms.

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time on the PS3, one of my favourite platform series, validates the general feeling that the PS3 has the better line-up this holiday season compared to the 360 and of course the Wii. (Eurogamer review 7/10)

Dragon Age: Origins on the 360 and PC is a RPG from the legendary developers Bioware ticks all the right boxes and should provide another solid experience to traditional RPG fans.(Eurogamer review 8/10)

Finally, a Wii game worth mentioning after a very long time. A Boy And His Blob which is actually game of the week.

Eurogamer review 8/10

“It’s a game that invites you to wallow in its languid depths, wriggle your toes, stretch your brain a little and take in the view. So satisfying and immersive is this distinctive experience that even some rather ill-advised boss battles can’t ruin the autumnal ambience. Gently challenging without being frustrating, and quietly ingenious in its construction, A Boy and His Blob is one of the Wii’s sweetest surprises.”

Costas

Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life.

Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded, www.forevergamers.com, and on his personal blog, www.lostingames.net.
